Re: Oldenburg

Well, for a start, I did a google search for Oldenburg lineage, and found:

Duke Christian V of Oldenburg-Welsburg
Born: 1340
Married: Unknown
Died: April 6, 1399


This seems likely to be the real Duke of Oldenburg during the period in
question.  The same pages show his ancestors and descendants.
What their sources are, I don't know, but this at least gives some
likely names, dates, and connections to follow up.

Doubtless Lena can produce some sources for Scandinavian royal and
princely houses.
